Cool cards # 7 & 8

Happy Friday to you all, we've survived another work week!!  For your viewing pleasure, here are two more "cool cards" for you to look at.

#7.  Mario Gosselin, 1990-91 Upper Deck, card # 91

An absolutely fantastic shot of the LA Kings goaltender attempting to make a save. 

It's not too often you get to see a shot like this from overhead.  The puck's location on the edge of his pad is indicative of the quality photos that Upper Deck produced for their first hockey set back in 1990-91.

Today, over 20 years later, the photography is still top notch.

8.  Shawn Green, 1998 Fleer Ultra #101

Another great action shot here, as it appears that Green has dove into 3rd base trying to avoid the tag of Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr.  Either that, or this is the weirdest game of twister I've ever seen.

Left foot, BLUE!!

The only thing for me that hinders the card is the writing of Shawn's name.  Maybe just a little too big and slanted, which takes away from the quality of the photo here.  Nonetheless, a great card.

Thanks for reading, get that Christmas shopping done this weekend!!  Robert

  1. When I saw the name Mario Gosselin, I thought it was a Saved-by-the-Bell mashup of Mario Lopez and Mark-Paul Gosselin.

    Then I remembered it was Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Oh well. So I guess it is a mashup of Mario Lopez + Jon&Kate+8.
